Now Parkbob is also starting off in New York City, thus making a contribution to solving the parking problem in the metropolis. The App shows in real time where vacant parking spaces are available and notifies the user where one can park and how much it costs. This is made possible by self-learning algorithms and applied data science. This year Parkbob aims to offer its service in 30 additional cities, 20 of which are located in the USA and Canada. Among the investors of Parkbob are A1. It is a part of the BMW Startup Garage, and cooperates with ReachNow, an American carsharing spin-off of BMW.
